Hey My Loves! Can you believe I'm coming up on 8 months to go?!?! I'm getting so excited. I feel like it is 8 days to go. I honestly feel like I'm running out of time, but I'm not. I'm so thankful to have time on my side currently. I see so many people and hear so many wedding horror stories about rushing and last minute stuff and one thing I can't stand is to rush! So now that I'm at 8 months I've pretty much narrowed down all the vendors I'm using for my wedding. We've paid most of my deposits and the wedding is well in the wind! Making these decisions are so hard for me though. I just want everything to be right! I have way to much time for this not to be just about perfect.
One of my biggest hang ups is this veil, I thought I loved the birdcage but after further review I'm torn. I love them all, I think they look so sacred and they really complete the look of the bride. I like the forehead tiara's, head chains, hair broaches...I just want it all. I look at them daily. My dress should be finished being made and shipped by the end of this month so maybe I can try on some different looks to really get a feel for what I want. I know Bella Rosa will hook me up! I'm not really worried at all.
What's next, not much. The guys are getting their tuxedo's in November and the girls are getting their dresses in October. I'm excited because the tuxedo's Aaron picked and the dresses the girls will be wearing are gorgeous. It's exciting to see it come together piece by piece. I know everyone will look stunning. The guys and girls are having meetings in September to go over their final look, cost, and deadlines.
So let's do a mini vendor roll call...It's not that many but still....They are the bomb, check them out for your events!

That's all for right now, I'm still finalizing other things like the photographer and stationary. It honestly feels good to be on the down slope of this wedding planning. My goal is to be completely finished with picking vendors by the end of September with all deposits paid. Once 2014 hits we will be moving into our new home and enjoying the pre-wedding festivities! I cannot wait! I'm so ready to show you guys all of our hard work and effort! Until next time....Tootles.
